lynx-dev Lynx tries to use a weird "cp" copy program when downloading fi

 I can't get lynx to download anything using the default "save to disk" option.


 If I type "lynx"; and then use the default 
"save to disk" option,
 the file appears to get downloaded, but then Lynx tries to use a weird "cp" 
copy program to copy
 the temporary file to "setup.exe". The copy program it is trying to spawn 
appears to be:


 and obviously, I don't have this path on my system.

 The status line shows:


 when the "Download option" numbered [1] is selected.


 Is there a way to tell lynx to use "/usr/bin/cp"? Is there a way to stop lynx 
looking for stuff
 with the weird path "/cygnus/CYGWIN~1/H-I586~1/bin"?

 downloaded lynx from the link on the main page.
